    We have 60 strawberry plants and replace every second year. 30 are new plants from runners and 30 from the year before. It helps when they're in rows to keep track of which ones are new and which ones will go at the end of the season.

    Mine are in a raised bed and planted using the SFG spacing, i.e. much more close than traditional spacing.
    They are about 18cm apart and each row across the width of my raised bed is offset, something like this:

    X_____X____X_____X____
    X_____X_____X____X
    X_____X____X_____X
    X_____X_____X____X


    Right, that's not showing correctly but every second vertical row of two is halfway between the previous row.

    Edit to add a second explanation! Think of a chess board and I only plant in the black squares!

    Etc, down the length of the bed from earlies to mids to lates, hope that makes sense.
